All aboard the U.S.S. Salem! That was the theme of the bash of all soap bashes, the 50th anniversary party of Days of our Lives.  The event was held in Hollywood this past Saturday night (November 7th) at the Hollywood Palladium on the eve of the long-running NBC daytime drama’s golden anniversary on Sunday.

Over 100 cast members past and presented were part of the night’s festivities which started with the red carpet arrivals, followed by cocktails and dinner, and then members of the cast and executive producer Ken Corday (playing the drums) rocking the house with musical performances as the night continued. Corday also made a speech as the all the attendees shared in a toast to Days of our Lives, the legacy of the series, and to being an elite member of the extended family they were all a part of.

Looks like an awesome night. But, you left out Gloria Loring. Her photo is included, but you didn’t mention her in either list of names. 🙁
Clearly, she is my favorite! 😉

Oh man they really brought back the stars from past and present didn’t they???? It must have been so cool to have been there!

I’m glad Eileen Davidson showed up, and damn she looks better than ever there!!! Kristen is so missed!

I’m glad that stars like Alison Sweeney, Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith were there also.

And can we get Carrie played by Christie Clark back on the show? Austin Peck can return as Austin also.

It’s great to see the actors we haven’t seen in decades. I started watching the show when Gregg Marx was on. But there needs to be a correction in your pictures. Philece Sampler didn’t play Lee Dumonde. She was Renee Dumonde, her daughter. Brenda Benet who played Lee, was written off when she passed on.

Great Pictures. Looks like the guy who plays Adam on Y & R only shook twice. I hate when that happens just before a picture. Bring Jamie Lynn Bauer back DAYS.

John de Lancie (Eugene) was at the party.

As for flashbacks on DAYS…It’s not too late…Flashbacks will hit us when the darkness turns to light.

The scene where the original actress who played Julie in the first episode where she is shown shoplifting (which can be seen on utube)shouldv’e been used when Julie is talking to Ciara about her own shoplifting experience…like i said in another post Susan Seaforth could’ve said as an inside joke how different she looked back then…i would’ve loved that…and since Days is one of few soaps that avoided the wiping process and saved their episodes, there is so many flashbacks from each decade since the 60s that shouldv’e been shown in true celebration of the shows 50th…and as good as… Read more »

Patrick, I HOPE that DAYS is smart enough to re-invent Eve; allow her time to mend away from Salem and BRING KASSIE BACK in late 2016. We ought to start a Petition to Bring Back Kassie. How?

I didn’t see James Scott. Did he and Days part in a bad way?

Days Of Our Lives

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
